Roger McGuinn    You Bowed Down   written by Elvis Costello

D#    D#/D       Cm                       G#      Fm
I suppose you're entitled to know why I'm making contacts
G#                 D#                     Fm  Bbsus A#
With acquaintances scattered all over the land
D#         D#/D Cm                      G#         Fm
I'd promise you  now and again that I'd honor the contract
G#            D#                 Fm Bbsus A#
If it hadn't crumbled away in my hand
Ab                 Bb   Fm           Bb
Well we broke that vow independently now
F                Cm  G#       G#/G  Fm
But I don't know why you absolutely deny
          D#  D#/D Cm A#         G#  A#
You bowed down         you bowed down
         D#  D#/D Cm A#         G#  A#
You bowed down         you bowed down
D#       D#/D         Cm                      G#       Fm
When you first looked away I might say it was really a kindness
G#           D#                     Fm  Bbsus A#
It must have hurt to see how dreams sour
D#       D#/D     Cm                       G#            Fm
Now they say that justice and love are the next thing to blindnesss
G#                  D#                    Fm   Bbsus A#
Well you're getting plenty of both of them now
Ab         Bb      Fm                      Bb
And so you parade  where appointments are made
F                     Cm   G#     G#/G Fm
And never meant to be kept unless you  accept
          D#  D#/D Cm A#         G#  A#
You bowed down         you bowed down
         D#  D#/D Cm A#         G#  A#
You bowed down         you bowed down
Ab               Bb                     Ab
You'll value the burnt amber of falling leaves
                   Bb
And you'll long to delay
Ab                 Bb
You'll  feel their breath as they whisper
Ab
It won't hurt you to betray
       D#  D#/D Cm  A#       G#       A#
If you just bow down         just bow down
D#  D#/D Cm  A#       G#       A#
Just bow down         just bow down
D#     D#/D   Cm                       G#      Fm
And now every time that we meet on the edge of hysteria
G#                   D#                      Fm  Bbsus A#
You're helping them  sell off some new party line
D#       D#/D Cm                       G#       Fm
I remember a time when you would have seemed so superior
G#                   D#                              Fm Bbsus A#
Now you say will you please meet this good friend of mine
Ab         Bb         Fm                       Bb
So your in demand as long as you'll kiss their hand
F           Cm       G#           G#/G      Fm
But all the applause is for their name  not yours
          D#  D#/D Cm A#         G#  A#
You bowed down         you bowed down
         D#  D#/D Cm A#         G#  A#
You bowed down         you bowed down
